Not a bad movie at all. Quite entertaining. Stephanie O has grown. Her expressions and BL did it for me. I was impressed by her work. Nse was also very natural. Ramsey seemed to have dug deeper and was quite consistent.

Uche, Rita, Mr Caucasian and the dancing scene were spoilers [sic].

I watched this movie a few weeks ago...I enjoyed the movie, the dialogue in Nigerian movies are getting better.

I wished for 3 things.


1) Rita, Uche and Mr Oyibo did not make any appearance what-so-ever!!!!!! I cringed each time the first two opened their mouth, and for the Yellow-man appeared...he was horrible.

2) I felt I was missing Part 0 and Part 3...I mean there was lots of undefined characters and behaviors...WHY WHY WHY....what caused this relationships to get to where they were and how did they end? Where they able to reconcile their difference or was it a western approach they were you walk away and barely work on it, where you discuss your relationship with peers and not elders or God. This movie definitely had the do-me-i-do you message which does not work in real life. I wasnt seeking for extra parts but just in 120minutes, they would have easily fitted a more balanced introduction and ending than what was offered.

3) When I saw the dancing...it reminded me of my high schools choreography...it was horrible. If everything ended well, then you dance..like maybe in an eventual wedding or baby dedication....3 relationships failed and una dey dance...no wonder Nigerians are the happiest people on earth




The highlight for the movies for me were Stepahie Okereke (Has this girl matured or what??) and Ramseys Wife...Ramsey himself was good and everyone else was Bllllaahhhhh..

Personally, I felt the movie was very biased towards men especially when they had 3 case studies to play with. 100% of marriages/relationships fail and most times both parties have a part to play regardless of sex.

I would really have loved to see these relationships work eventually through the use of virtuousness (Uche Jumbo), marriage counseling, realization that the grass isnt always greener, reproach…instead they started dancing….WTF??

Maybe like GMP & GWP, we might be expecting an Un-loaded to counter this bias.

she was driven by her driver .....and you don't expect her husband to be looking back, while driving. ...since .he wasn't expecting to see her

Oh and is living with ur boyfriend now popular in naija i thought it was the other way around ...i just cant figure out how steph's characters storyline is feasible in naija?

how is that not possible ....... even in the university .... girls bunk with their boyfriend..... how much more a working class lady ........my dear people do it

I just don't see why it's necessary to shit on the entire AMAAs or to namecheck Slamdance and Tribeca or to talk about your job in order to make your point.

By doing that, you are actually proving HER point... because you are illustrating that it IS personal.

It's just not a good look... It works against you in the end. It's better to just maintain an objective argument.
i thot mamazita was the first to reveal her profession (i.e said she co-wrote the script) and amaa awards too and not angela81.

MY thoughts about this movie

I felt like watching a naija movie, so why not watch a movie that has been hyped on NR before so I ended up with RELOADED one and two.

Hmmm....I don't know o, but this is most def not Emem's best. Compared to others works she has done, I feel that this project in colabo with Desmond is rather weak. Am sorry, it is not like as if the movie is that bad but it is not there or rather it is not what i expected. Of course there were some pleasant suprises but then again there was so much that just did not fit in.
Let me review the xters first.

Ramsey Tokunbo Nouah: I enjoyed his acting actually. I think he has woken up from his slumber and finally realized that he has to take his acting to another stage. I believe he can even do much more better.

Desmond Sola Elliott: Ehmmm...I was rather confused by his acting to be honest. I don't know i just can't place is right now.

Van Vicker: his acting was alright. It wasn't too much ...it was just OK

Uche Jombo-Chai and Rita Dominic-Great: Why were these ladies in the movie? Was it to promote the movie, as in selling more copies or what? I find them quite irrelevant to the movie. I mean of course Rita looks fab. hands down...she lost some weight and I believe that she looks totally awesome. She had the role as a narrator like Kate had but WHY? I don't understand it, honestly and then at the end she becoming a victim too? Huhn?? Okay maybe it is just me but I think they should have either given her a proper role or just let it be. Rita and Uche have enterd a level of not just acting in anyhow movies (am not saying this one was one) BUT all this yeye roles, please leave to actors that are trying to get to una level. BIKO!!

Iniobong Edo-Ehiagwina: that girl got me cracking up sooooooooo bad. She can deliver it all. Classy babe, area babe - infact na dat area babe sef she sabi act pas. I really enjoyed her acting AND she did not shout too much this time around.

Stephanie Okereke: there was one scene where she just took me away. It was the scene where she got to find out from Vans mom that he got someone else pregnant and the way she just acted that part when she came to NSE got me....I did not know when tears actually came out of my eyes. Am actually happy to see her acting, cause she is like soem fresh wind for me.
And yeah when it comes to lunatic scenes she sabi rip am off pas anybody else.


There were other actors too but I do not need to mention them, I believe all of them did a good job overall.

Now my own questions. Where did ALL of the ABOVE got to meet each other, especially : UCHE, RITA, NSE, STEPHANIE and INI. Now before we are in a hurry to answer those questions, there was the first scene in which RITA intro herself or something AND they had some sort of picknick and then another scene whereby they were in the gym - is that how they got to know each other? Cause me just no understand as them take know each other. That's a mega loophole for me. Okay we know that Ini is a housewife, Rita got the job of the narrator being the producer of the show that uche moderates and NSE? What was her occupation or was she just the rich kid?
AND Stephanie nko? I mean i heard a couple of times " I earn well" but where and how? At least one tiny shot about they themselevs would have done it for me.

As for the first part, too much back and forth - honestly. And am talking about all relationships...too much back and forth and I also want to say that the cast was too much. I guess that made the movie to be what it is. I do not believe in too much cast in the movie but then again Emem and Desmond had their reasons. I just think that a script that has soo many xters need some proper narrating of the story itself, so that someone wouldn't forget tiny loopholes that could come up along the way.

Then the scene of Van and Stephanie were a bore after some time, it was too much and for me prolonging part two. AND why the ending? It was not like as if they interviewd them from day one to know how their lives are? So why was the ending the way the ending was? Am not getting it, and why the dancing?

okay enough of my ranting BUT I believe that all those remixes of GMP GWP and whatever should just stop right there. I think EMEM herself should leave love stories or rather relationship stories for now and probably venture into something else cause as for me o, it is getting boring.

Na my own 2 cents.

I no get ya time!!
I am just watching the movie ....i had a question in the scene where ramseys wife is following him is d car supposed to be a taxi.......or is ramseys character dumb enuf not to notice his wife's car?
I wondered about that too.It was obviously his wife's car, being driven by their driver, and they were directly behind him..He had to have spied her in the rear view mirror.

Sorry but her car was directly behind his,and if he isnt using his rear view mirror when driving then maybe he shouldnt be driving,LOL....I tend to recognise people behind me if I know them, so I'm surprised she was that close and he didnt recognise it was his wife's car following him.Nike's point is valid

Agree that the dancing at the end was stupid and I cringed everytime Uche Jumbo opened her mouth!

Rita wasnt so bad, but then again, her narrative was inserted clumsily and it ended up being irrelevant,which is a shame as it should have been more focal to the story....It just didnt gel. Kate scored much better in that role in GMP

Uche narration was a little dry; no spark at all. I m loving the new girl, NSE, she's awesome.


Very nice, i enjoyed it. Nse, ramsay, steph rocked! They were my favorite to watch.
